Program Summary: 

The NLRB and U.S. DOL have increasingly focused on the joint employer doctrine. Companies that engage subcontractors, consultants, and/or temporary workers through staffing agencies are well advised to conduct risk management to avoid being held liable under the joint employer doctrine.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Audience will recognize risks of creative non-employment worker arrangements.
  2. Audience will understand horizontal and vertical joint employee analysis.
  3. Audience will recognize some contractual protections to consider.
  4. Audience will understand the "control" issue under current law.
